I was approached by my friend Christine O'Leary, a volunteer working with St. Christopher’s Foundation for Children (SCFC), to help her with creating an information graphic that educates consumers how to read food labels. I thought Ok that is easy enough, but as I have mentioned many times in my blog here, the best part about doing work of this nature is learning about others and having the chance to help them! I started, as I do with all my projects, with researching the client. The info graphic was for St. Christopher’s and their Farm to Families initiative.
I found out that, "Each week, Farm to Families supplies North Philadelphia families with boxes of wholesome fresh produce or fruit at a reduced cost. Boxes are packed with delicious seasonal fruits and vegetables, often valued at double the price. Additional fresh items including local eggs, meat, and seafood are also offered at affordable prices. Farm to Families works with community-based organizations to address availability and affordability of fresh food in North Philadelphia."
So needless to say I was happy to help, check them out here, http://scfchildren.org/farm-to-families-initiative
